6:31am
system for staff and students. even an anonymous tip line and talk about the role of a security director. the teachers union supports any training in place to help make schools safer. >> i think a lot of the issues have to do with warning in advance and paying attention and knowing what to pay attention to. because you can say well, it's a child comes to you and says so and so is doing this on facebook. i'm concerned. if it stops right there, then it stops there and something bad can happen. >> and district officials want to keep parents in the loop. we're told parents should expect letters outlining the new security measures. >> thank you, jen. first baptist church hosted a code blue rally in an effort to take a standing against bullying. though there's no evidence that

83, at the harrisburg expressaway looking good in both directions. >> good morning, everyone. i think it will change a little bit for us as high pressure slides off the coast and a series of fronts will come in from the northwest. there's a little bit of precipitation coming through overnight. so we will put in a 30% chance in for rain overnight but mostly computer models take this precipitation and dry it up before it gets into maryland. if you have plans tonight, maybe take an umbrella with you. but afterwards it will be clear. we don't expect any precipitation during the day. you will see plenty of sunshine filtering through the high, thin cloud cover. 50'sened 60's showing up on the map as opposed to 40's. 58 in rising sun. the forecast for today, a mixture of sunshine and a few
6:48am
clouds. this evening and overnight, just a slight chance for a few showers. sunrise at 6:47. high temperatures this afternoon between 0-85. if you're taking the boat out, should be nice on the water. southwest winds 10-15 knots and the waves 1-2 feet late in the day. seven-day forecast. into the weekend. if you're up early tomorrow, you might see a couple sprinkles, but it will clear up. the high temperatures both days will be in the upper 70's. the overnight lows will be in the 40's in many locations. we'll jump up to 80 on monday. the next real chance for rain i think will come in on tuesday with a high of 81. all in all, looks like a good weekend. >> time for a last look at one of our big stories, baltimore
